Sleaford Mods (SOLD OUT)
Inevitably, Sleaford Mods have gained comparisons with Nottingham’s favourite anti-hero Arthur Seaton (indeed, Williamson has played Seaton in a Saturday Night Sunday Morning-inspired event and the video for new single ‘Mr. Jolly Fucker’ – not included here – was directed by Alan Sillitoe’s son, David). But where Seaton had that individualistic nihilism that so inspired Arctic Monkeys, Sleaford Mods know that you rise as a class or you don’t rise at all: “movin’ up in the world doesn’t mean using the lift, mate/What floor do you want?/Don’t mind me – I’m in the fuckin’ thing all day” (‘My Jampandy’). Perhaps the angriest words on the whole album (and trust me, that’s very angry) are reserved for “the cunt with the gut and the Buzz Lightyear haircut/calling all the workers plebs” and who’s just had a wage rise (‘Fizzy’).
